Emmett’s passion is in helping people age well – maintaining their strength, mobility, and functionality. “As we get older, getting exercise goes from playing to work. I want to make exercise fun for all ages and help people be functional.” Emmett began his fitness journey as a “fluffy” 14 year old. He knows all the stigmas that are attached to being overweight. He also knows how much better he feels, mentally and physically, to be fit and he wants that for everyone.
